I quite enjoyed your comments for both Annecy and Chamonix. While I only did a day
trip from Grenoble to both places they certainly did have charm. I really like the
walk along the lake Annecy in the early morning with all the locals having their
morning walk. I guess you can say I am a people watcher.
I am jealous as you got up the lift at Chamonix because the day I was there they
were replacing the cable on it. Oh well guess I will have to go back:) I did however
enjoy some hiking around the mountains as the views are spectacular.
